Carl Ludwig Jacobsen was a prolific artist and produced a diverse portfolio of work. Prior to becoming a painter, he worked as an illustrator and cartoonist at Danish newspaper ‘Dags Pressen’. His skill for drawing enabled him to turn his hand to various disciplines.
He was inspired by the old masters, such as Delacroix, Rubens and Corot. However, as you can see here, he also gained inspiration from the French post-impressionists.
He travelled extensively to further his art education and exhibited all over Europe. But perhaps his greatest achievement was a commission to provide decorative works for the Royal Danish Theatre.
